List/Link Building Strategies
When publishing a list post or step-by-step guide, create something that will stand out (for example, this image to promote link building from Backlinko)
After viewing this image I’ve created a new image that I hope will promote this blog post that I’ll be able to use in my super personalized outreach (mentioned below).
4 Types of Blog Posts That Generate Natural Backlinks – this Ultimate Guide is one of them. “Generating backlinks is hard. Find out how you can make it easier with these types of blog posts … proven to generate natural backlinks.”
Use blogger outreach to promote your content.
For example, Brian Dean, an SEO expert from Backlinko suggests using “Super Personalized Outreach” (see item #9). How do you do it? In short, “Personalize every outreach email that you send … personalized messages got 32% more replies than those that (didn’t)” – (see 2nd image).
Below is a sample e-mail that Brian Dean sent in a personalized message. Make note that he’s not begging for a link which makes a big difference to get that backlink.
Now you can copy and paste the information below to personalize your request.
